With more people defecting from TOBB to avoid all the , I thought it was time to start a Channel 9 thread over here. Please post your stories and experiences regarding Channel 9. I'll start things off with what I heard while taxiing in after today's arrival: Very interesting to listen to Channel 9 on my CLE-EWR flight tonight (UA523). I noticed emergency trucks waiting near 4R and when we switched to tower frequency, I heard them talking to a Citation that was landing 3 slots behind us. No word on what the problem was since they were probably on a different frequency when they discussed it but the pilot told ATC that whatever it was "would probably be a non-event but thanks for the extra precautions." While we were waiting to cross 4L, I saw him come in and other than a slightly longer than normal roll-out, it looked like a normal landing. After the Citation headed over to Signature under it's own power, the tower told the trucks to wait in place because a FedEx MD11 with hydraulic failure was landing three slots later. We had already crossed 4L at that point so I didn't get to see the landing but it sounded like there were no issues other than the plane needing to be towed in. On the way off, I thanked the pilot for the chance to listen (I think a "thank you" goes a long way to letting the flight crews know we DO like to listen in and appreciate it when they let us).
